Hello again everyone,
The Kitchener-Waterloo Branch Committee of Management met via Zoom last week and, in light of the ongoing pandemic and public health directives, made the difficult decision to cancel the fall term of our regular, in-person Tuesday classes. We will continue to monitor the situation, and will make a decision about the resumption of classes in January based on the information and public health orders in place in the next few months.
We were also informed by the Ball Committee that the Kitchener-Blair Ball will be postponed until November 6, 2021.
The Committee of Management has asked our teachers to develop some ideas to present at the August COM meeting regarding options for virtual classes and tutorials. We will also be looking at ways that we can facilitate connection between our members, even if we cannot dance together. If any of you have suggestions, please contact me or another member of the COM with your ideas.
The RSCDS is also continuing to develop virtual programming and we encourage you to participate in those events as well. Additionally we are consulting with other local branches to determine if we can develop programs in conjunction with them.
I know that we all miss dancing and will have a grand celebration when we are all able to take to the floor again. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you on the virtual dance floor.
NEW DATE Ball
We will be hosting our 2020 Ball on NOVEMBER 6, 2021 in partnership with the Blair Scottish Country Dance Group to celebrate "100 Years years of Scottish Country Dancing" in Waterloo Region - the 60th Anniversary of the founding of the Kitchener-Waterloo group and the 40th Anniversary of the founding of the Blair Group. Please see the flyer and ball program below.
John Raymond Dugan 1935 - 2020
It is with great sadness that we share the news that Ray Dugan passed away on the morning of Sunday, March 1, 2020. Ray was a longtime member and teacher of our group as well as a deviser of many Scottish country dances. We will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sylvia and his family.
